Actress Jean Seberg, FBI’s COINTELPRO, and the film ‘Kill!’

The scene was tragic.A casket covered with lilies, daisies, and yellow roses. A stunned and muted crowd of hundreds gathered at Paris’s Montparnasse Cemetery, Friday, September 14, 1979.The mourners were there to bid farewell to Jean Seberg, internationally renowned actress, activist, and reluctant celebrity. Among those present were her young son Diego and his father (Jean’s former husband), notable French author and diplomat Romain Gary.Parisian police had declared her death a suicide, the result of alcohol and barbiturate poisoning. But the coroner was more cautious, at first issuing a report of “probable suicide” with “unresolved questions,” and then the following year filing charges for “persons unknown” who may have been involved in her death.
